Our People

Employing highly skilled and experienced staff is essential for us at The Foster Care Co-operative, but it’s also important that those staff reflect our values in everything they do within our agency.

Our people work collaboratively in a supportive and innovative environment to ensure that we continue to make a difference to children’s lives. Every one of our team is valued for the contribution they bring, and we support them every step of the way.

“People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves, they have the first secret of success.”

Norman Vincent Peale

(they make us who we are!)

Ethical
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter”

As an agency we expect our staff to conduct themselves in a professional way; we provide the services expressed in our Statement of Purpose; we honour our commitments and promises; we stand behind our foster carers and support them in caring for the children in care safely and positively.

Quality
“Quality means doing it right when no one is looking”

We work tirelessly to ensure the service we provide to our foster carers is of high quality through training, development and providing unparalleled support to foster carers. We never cut corners and the outcomes demonstrate this commitment.

Integrity
“Shortcuts are built on sand, while integrity is forged with iron”

Integrity is the lifeblood of our business. It separates our agency from the rest. We believe that doing the right things for the right reasons, and treating our carers and staff fairly and with respect are fundamental to our success.
